Words and Music by Joe Flynn.

A smiling young couple were wed one day,
And soon settled down in the same old way,
And when a wee baby, it came so sweet,
They were made happy, their joy was complete;
How they would laugh when he tried to talk;
How they would boast when he managed to walk;
He was their sunshine, their home's little king,
And night after night the proud mother would sing:

Co to sleep, baby, darling, close your pretty blue eyes,
The angels will guard you, my own little beauty, they're watching
 you from the skies
Don't you cry, baby deary, and slumber will o'er you creep;
Hush-a-bye, hush-a-bye, papa, step softly, the baby has gone to sleep.

But sadness came into that home one day,
The baby fell ill and would seldom play;
He no longer smiled at his latest toy;
His voice wasn't heard in its childish joy;
How they would kneel then and fervently pray,
"Father in heaven, don't take him away "-
His spirit's departed beyond the sky-
Mo more the sad mother sings this lullaby:- Chorus.
